CRESTVIEW — A 30-year-old man was charged with battery after abusing his mom and breaking into her house.
A woman called the Crestview Police Department about her son breaking into her home through the garage door. She told an officer that he had assaulted her earlier in the parking lot of North Okaloosa Medical Center and she believed he was under the influence of narcotics.
She said her son had punched her in the ribs, bit her arm and scratched her. She had a bruise and scratches on her arm. The garage door was damaged.
The officer tried to talk to the man, but he was agitated and refused to leave a bedroom. He was detained since he had an active warrant in Okaloosa County.
